Common Questions & Answers About Funerals and Burials
What Type of Service Should I Have?
The type of service conducted for your loved one is specified by your family. Our directors are trained to help your family arrange the type of service you desire. The service is usually held at a place of worship or at our gathering space. The service may vary in ritual according to religious denomination or the wishes of your family. The presence of friends at this time is an acknowledgement of friendship and support. A private service is by invitation only where selected relatives and a few close friends attend the funeral service. A memorial service is usually a service without the body present and can vary in ceremony and procedures according to your family’s community and religious affiliations.
Do We Need to Buy a Vault?
There are no state or federal laws requiring you to purchase a vault for burial; however, most cemeteries do require the use of a vault or outer burial container. This is to help protect your loved one’s casket and support the weight of the earth following burial.
What Clothing Should We Provide for the Burial?
We invite families to bring in clothing for their loved one to wear. This could be a favorite sweatshirt, best suit, or a special cultural outfit. A modest neckline and long sleeves typically work best.
